The Medicine Game
Tucked away in central New York State the Onondaga Nation has been known to produce some of world's top lacrosse players. Yet, the fear of leaving their community, substance abuse, and poverty have kept far too many of these players from venturing off the "Rez" and into the collegiate or professional ranks.
Over six years, filmmaker Lukas Korver follows Jeremy and Hiana Thompson, brothers driven by a single goal--to beat the odds and play the sport of lacrosse for national powerhouse Syracuse University. The obstacles in their way are frequent and daunting, but the brothers' love for the game, each other, and their family's unyielding determination, propels these youth towards their dream.
